Civil Rights

DRC works to stop disability discrimination and stigma.  We bring cases that make sure people can participate in society and be empowered. For more information about our work, please read on.

DRC’s Civil Rights Practice Group specializes in disability discrimination law, including the Americans with Disabilities Act and Fair Housing Amendments Act.  Our goal is to stop discrimination, eliminate stigma, and protect civil rights.  We recognize that social integration and empowerment for people with disabilities is the ultimate solution to the discrimination issues we address, and focus on cases that make these solutions attainable.

DRC’s Civil Rights Practice Group litigates complex disability discrimination cases that have a broad impact on the community and advocates for systemic change to eliminate disability discrimination.  We train, mentor, and collaborate with other advocates and community based organizations on disability discrimination law so that we can maximize the impact of our expertise.
